Equal Opportunity Theory
Fairness in Liberty for All



August 1996 | 283 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
A comprehensive and detailed explanation of the equal opportunity principle that influences social policy today is provided in this book. Dennis E Mithaug addresses the discrepancy between the right and the experience of self-determination and explains our collective responsibility for assuring fair prospects for self-determination for all. The logical, philosophical and psychological basis for equal opportunity theory is presented, as is the social and judicial background. Finally, the optimal prospects principle is examined.
